You know, this episode sorta proves a lot of Internet Archives reviewers to be very wrong, if not outright liars. Groucho would be pleased.

Of course, this isn't Groucho at his best, but he is well-suited to the medium of television and proves to be a very pleasing personality, and completely able to be humorous without an actual script (Groucho would generally plan a few ideas for each episode, but there was no actual script in the usual sense).

Nice little show really.
